Religious and Spiritual Aspects of Human Service Practice (99 Edition)

Religious and Spiritual Aspects of Human Service Practice (99 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although health and human service professionals traditionally receive extensive training in the emotional and physical aspects of caring for a person, they rarely receive adequate instruction in an area often as essential — spirituality and religious belief. Recognizing the importance of religion to a large share of the population, Religious and Spiritual Aspects of Human Service Practice fills this gap in human services literature. James W. Ellor, F. Ellen Netting, and Jane M. Thibault address the challenge of understanding the client's perspective — even when it involves a religious tradition unfamiliar to the practitioner — and consider the impact of the client's needs on the agency and on public policy.

Book News Annotation:

Contending that despite current efforts to make social workers sensitive to differences of race, ethnicity, and gender, the diversity and impact of religious beliefs has often been overlooked, three professors of social work/human services offer a guide to direct practice concerns. Spiritual assessment, positive and pathological uses of religious practice, and the need for spiritual self-awareness among human-service workers are explored, as are issues related to community, congregation, and making of public policy.
